BKFC Asia 5 is set for Pattaya on November 4th. The event will be headlined by a bare knuckle Muay Thai fight between Buakaw Banchamek and Saenchai PKSanchaigym but there are eight other boxing bouts on the card.

In the co-main event Po Denman takes on Britain Hart. The latter holds the BKFC strawweight title but will be moving up to 125lbs for this fight.

Prison inmate

Chalermpol Sawadsuk will be returning to the world of bare knuckle boxing after an unsuccessful title shot at Rise 171. He was knocked out in Tokyo last weekend by Kenta Nambara.

Chalermpol is a convicted drug dealer who is undefeated in bare knuckle boxing with a record of 1-0. He has much more experience in the sanctioned version of the sport with 21 wins from his 30 fights.

He is taking on an Iranian opponent who is also undefeated in bare knuckle boxing. Keivan Soleimani is 2-0 meaning that someone’s perfect professional record will be spoiled.

Long term

Two long term Thailand residents will go head to head. BKFC veterans Tee Jay Chang and Kristof Kirsch will face off and both men are very familiar to fans of bare knuckle boxing in the region.

Swedish kickboxing veteran Tofan Pirani will almost certainly be the oldest fighter on the card. He has been matched with Daniel Dörrer who has been competing on MMA cards in Thailand for several years.
